Magic Village Yards: A Home Away From Home Near Disney

A big thank you to our Staycation Guide Partners, Magic Village Yards, for hosting us. Opinions are our own.
My family and I recently had the opportunity to stay at Magic Village Yards, and I have to say, we were impressed. From the roomy accommodations to the on-site dining and kid-friendly facilities, we are already planning on going back.

Magic Village Yards Accommodations

The pictures on the website do not do the villas justice. They feel extremely spacious. The downstairs features a full kitchen (including a dishwasher and plenty of pantry space); a large family room with a television and plenty of comfortable seating (ideal for a movie night in) with high ceilings; a living room; a half bathroom; and a laundry room (imagine getting back home with a suitcase of clean clothes!).

The upstairs features three bedrooms, all with en suite bathrooms. The master bedroom includes a balcony with lounge chairs (perfect for early morning coffee or an evening glass of wine). One of the other bedrooms also features a small balcony. The outdoor space features a hot tub, which they leave on at all times to ensure the water is the perfect temperature whenever you’re ready to hop in; an outdoor dining set for enjoying a meal al fresco; and a summer kitchen featuring a ready-to-go gas grill.
Everything from the kitchen to the bedrooms and bathrooms felt clean. There’s nothing more off-putting than feeling like you’re using a dirty bathroom or sleeping in a dirty bed. Everything was spotless! They’ve really thought of everything to make you feel at home. There is even a trail of dim lights illuminating the stairs at night. Parking is also easy and plentiful.

Location, Location, Location

You don’t want to be stuck in the car for extended periods of time with antsy little ones while on staycation so proximity is everything. First and foremost, Magic Village Yards is just minutes from Disney so getting to and from the parks is a cinch! Though the homes are equipped with full kitchens, you may not feel like cooking (you are on vacation after all). Luckily, there are dozens of options all within a couple of minutes of the villas, including Chick-fil-A, Dunkin’ Donuts, Wawa, and Texas Roadhouse, just to name a few.

Dining

Magic Village Yards’ on-site restaurant, Villagio, is not your average hotel restaurant. The setting is picturesque and the food is unbelievably good. They offer lunch and dinner. A few highlights: the Portafoglio Castello, an appetizer featuring baked pizza dough, mozzarella and Calabrese sausage; the Quattro Formaggi Pizza (NOT your average cheese pizza); the Classic Picanha Burger, top rump steak (picanha) burger with all the toppings and served with fries; and Fragola, a dessert pizza topped with Nutella and strawberries. 

Because the restaurant opens up to the pool, they also offer a poolside menu. We loved the food so much, my family would gladly go back just to eat, even if we weren’t staying there.
